Position #1: Scissors

scissors.jpgOne of our favorite positions is one that we call “Scissors.” I’ll tell you why dh and I like it so much, then I’ll describe it so that you can figure out how to do it, in case you’ve never tried it. I was also able to find a picture that sort of shows what it looks like. I say “sort of” because it doesn’t show it exactly the way we do it. Oh, and don’t worry about clicking the link. The picture shows little wooden figurines, not real people.

We enjoy this position because it allows for very deep penetration, complete access to all the other goodies so that they can be fondled with fingers and tongues, plus if the man is a little heavy this position helps keep the pressure of his weight off his wife. It is also easy to use a vibrating egg or other toy while in this position, which adds another element of fun.

Now, how to do it?

First, the woman is laying on her side. Her top leg is either going straight up in the air on a right angle, or she can swing it in front of herself. The man basically straddles her bottom leg so that their genitals are joined in the center, sort of like if you opened two pairs of scissors and joined them in the middle.

That’s basically it. It’s not so fancy, but it is a lot of fun. In fact, now that I’ve written this I think I have major plans for my husband when he gets home. Go try it yourself!



  1. the similar position is one of our favorites in the morning. Sometimes you wake up and both want sex, but neither is feeling awake enough for the responsibility of being on top… great solution with both being on our sides!

  2. We tried this the other night. It was ok but it didn’t make the top 10 list. I guess everyone it different, but we always enjoy trying anything new. 🙂

  3. Ok, first I would like to say…I find myself distracted while reading this my all the snow falling. LOL At first I thought it was something on my screen and was trying to whipe it off. LOL… Anyway, we haven’t tried this but it does look interesting and leaves room for the lady to help herself to orgasm.

  4. It sounds like you are describing the leg glider position. It is a personal favorite because it puts pressure on numerous pleasure spots.

  5. If your DH enjoys ML when you are wearing thigh highs this is a good position to try. It allows him to feel the nylon on the insides of his thighs while gliding along the leg that is straight on the bed. He can see, touch and feel the thigh highs on the leg that is in the air with his hands, chest, whatever.

    It feels really good to me because the angle of things causes his member to touch a lot of really sweet spots, all at the same time. ;-).

    Calling it an erotic position is right on target.

  6. OK, sounds interesting, but my guy’s penis doesn’t seem to bend that way when erect. f he is laying like the picture shows, his member would surely point up towards his head rather than down toward my vagina.

    How does this work? Anyone?

    I guess because of his rather inflexible penis, for us the missionary position or woman on top position works best. He seems to like the doggie position best, but it is not my favorite. However, since he likes it, we do it from time to time.

  7. My husband and I have a very similar position. I used to train for contortion (Then I got pregnant and that slowed down) and I love mixing contortion and sex positions. Something about a stretching pain and sex that feels really similar to an orgasm. I call it the T. I lay on my back and spread my legs open into the splits as far as I can and my hubby lays on his side (Horizontally, like my spread legs) and he rests pressing down his upper body on one leg and his lower body on the other leg and his penis sideways in my vagina… If you can’t do the splits you can still enjoy this position by having one leg on top of him and have him straddle your other leg with his legs or have both legs on top of him.

    The pros are: Deep penetration! Easy access to the clitoris, Nobody on top so nobody gets tired, great stretch.

    The Cons are: Can’t stimulate much on your husband from this position, probably hard for some people to find a spot to do this at.

  8. All I have to say is that this position really “cuts” to the chase! This position is great for my husband and I because we’re both lazy and have notorious morning breath!
